Eric did message me that night to apologize saying that he had watched the film and felt terrible for hitting me late. I accepted his apology and wished him the best. We’ve never had any “beef”.— Benjamin Watson (@BenjaminSWatson) September 1, 2019
Fines, however, have once again proven to be inconsistent and relative. Shameful https://t.co/19XQleMvND
Watson's frustration with the NFL might stem from the four-game suspension he will serve at the start of this season after violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.
Different violations get different punishments in the NFL. Reid's play was dangerous and could have resulted in serious injury for either him or Watson, but a relatively small fine is all he got. Watson and Golden Tate at the same time will serve month-long suspensions for far less serious violations.
